October 2010 Surgery



  • I really hope your surgery provides you excellent relief and you have a smooth recovery with minimal pain.

    Will be anxious to hear how everything goes!

  • I hope everything goes very smooth and your recovery isn't too painful.

    Please let us know how things are going, when you can type.

  • Geeze... I am so sorry to read that your surgery has been cancelled.

    I'll take a look around the other forums to see if you have it rescheduled yet.

    Again... so sorry to hear this news.

  • I wish you the best!

    I'm trying to play catch up and decided it would be best to just let you all know I hope all of your surgeries go well and your recoveries are kept to as minimal pain, as possible.

  • Good luck to those late october surgery dates !! Yes you will feel nervous and worry about how its all going to go afterwards. Everyone is diffrernt but I can say it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Pain managment is very good xx it will be worth swapping a bit of intense pain for a lot of chronic pain !! See you guys on the other side !!
